Signal integrity in the far-field radiation from pulse-train excited array antennas is studied via full timedomain instruments. The disturbance in the received signal is related to the fidelity factor. At any point in our analysis, the disturbance is evaluated based on a reduced, well defined set of parameters: pulse parameters and pulse repetition rate – temporal dependence, and elementary radiator location – spatial dependence. Their effect is examined by means of illustrative numerical experiments. These results are expedient for enhancing the detectability of the signals radiated by pulse-train excited array antennas, as needed in wireless digital transfer.
